Bodog Saying Peace Out America


Recommended Posts

Obviously not thrilled, but I do take some solace in the delay until the end of the year and this line..."All Bodog.eu clients’ funds will remain safe and they will have the option to switch to a new MMGG brand should they wish but MMGG confirms it’s business as usual."

Actually, based on this article, no big deal...http://www.holdempokerchat.com/online-poke...amed-in-the-us/

Calvin Ayre announced this morning that the Bodog Brand is leaving the US. Most players took this to mean that Bodog is leaving the US but that’s not really the case. Over the past few years the Morris Mohawk Gaming Group’s (MMGG) has been licensing the Bodog name and will continue to operate the poker and sportsbook under a new name come January 1st, 2012. We realize this is a bit confusing but for you as a player the only change will be the name of the site. All deposits/withdrawls, support and software has been operated by MMGG. in other words Bodog has had nothing to do with the site other then have it’s name on it for the past 5 years.So to recap, the only change you will see is the name of the site. Here’s what Calvin had to say “It will mean the end of the Bodog era in the US but Morris Mohawk Gaming has been operating the brand in the US Market for the past 5 years so other than a name change it should be business as usual for US players”. There is no reason to fear this change.

Phew, thats actually pretty relieving. I was wondering about that section. But still you have to wonder if it will be the same software and same player base or if it suddenly becomes a ghost town no better than some of the random sites with 100 people on it.

Based on the discussion on 2+2, it sounds like the network's even staying basically the same, they're essentially just changing the brand.

This makes perfect sense.Bodog has talked about forming a poker network so it makes sense that the new US Brand is a skin on the network and to the rest of the World Americans aren't playing at Bodog but at a separate US only brand.It's a good way to separate and protect the rest of the World business in case something affects the US business.

Agree.The Bodog rep on 2+2 said...
In a lot of ways it will be like a skin, yes. Numerous operators on one network.
